Can't make outgoing calls on VoIP but can receive incoming calls just fine - help!
LadyAustin
Newbie

I work from home and must rely on my Linksys IP Phone.  However, I get drop after 10 seconds when I make outgoing calls nor I can access my voicemail on it.  I can get incoming calls no problem.  I already contacted Linksys and we tried several things with even trying the VoIP at another location and it works fine. So it is not the Linksys IP Phone that is having a problem.  I'm currently High Speed DSL with a Actiontec Rev. B modem to connect my VoIP.  How can I resolve this problem, I'm losing money!

A little bit of more information about my problem.  Yesterday I decided to use my Skype instead of my cell phone to call my customer back.  Skype returned an error stating that the Network is blocking Skype to be launched.  Then I decided to try calling through my MSN Instant Messaging and it wouldn't connect.

Ok.

#1 Check the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, and DNS Servers on your computer.

For example if you are on Windows XP:

a) Go to Start -> Run.

b) Type in cmd and press enter.

c) In the new window, called the command prompt, type in ipconfig /all and press enter.

#2 With your web browser go to the Default Gateway, and try to log-in with the current password,

a) Default user name is: Admin

b) Default password is: Password

#3 In the modem combo, go to Advanced Setup -> DHCP Settings.

#4 What is the Starting and Ending IP Address(es)?

#5 In the modem combo, go to Advanced Setup -> UPnP

#6 If you do not have at least two game consoles behind your router, turn off UPnP in the router.

By game console, a special type of computer with no keyboard or mouse (and it/they are usually connected to a TV).

#7 Correct me if I am wrong, this is the port forwarding guide for your router

?

#8 Correct me if I am wrong, you meant the: Linksys IP Phone SPA 942

#1 I found the online manual. I access it using https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/csbpipp/ip_phones/user/guide/spa9XX_user_web.pdf&embedded=tru...

#2 About page 21 of 87

a) This phone is connected using the WAN port and the other end of that cable is connected to of the LAN ports of your modem combo.

b) OR are you using wireless?

c) Does this phone have 2 LAN ports (as addressed on page 8 and 15 of 87 )?

#3 About page 23 of 87:

a) Did you upgrade the firmware of it?

b) The Phone IP Address starts with 192.168.1?

#1 With the phone (not web based screen), go to Setup -> Network

#2 Change that IP Address to 192.168.1.63

#3 With you web browser go to 192.168.1.63 and log-in as need be.

#4 If it does not look like my screen shot (has a link called SIP and link called ext 1), take a screen shot of what you see in there.

#5 Save the screen shot.

#6 Upload the image to this site, using the attachment feature
